We just got your cd today. Thank you so much. We had such a wonderful time in Maui and the wedding was beautiful. We loved Maui so much we are actually talking about moving out there hopefully in 2 or 3 years. I was looking at tickets to go this Feb. and Allen admitted to me he looked for March last week. We hope to be in paradise again soon.

Thank You,
Allen and Mary Margaret Cox

Aloha Leah!

We appreciate everything you did for us on our special day! Everything was Perfect! You created for us the most BEAUTIFUL ceremony, my gorgeous calla lily bouquet, leis, our minister, the PERFECT location for our photos, and for being a wonderful wedding coordinator! George did an AMAZING job and produced for us photos we will cherish forever. We enjoyed his personality and he made us feel comfortable throughout the photo shoot. I wanted you to know ( if I haven't already mentioned this) that if anyone decides to marry in Maui .....I will recommend you. Thank you again for everything and warm wishes to you and your family!

Thanks for taking care of the beverage bill for us and for everything else. It turned out to be an absolutely lovely ceremony, despite the heat taking out one of the groomsmen and almost everyone else. Appreciated your help very much with everything, including all the little details. Thanks for waiting until we got back home to inform us about the bev bill still outstanding. You allowed us to have a nice honeymoon away from worries. Thanks again and we envy you your Maui home. Did not want to come back here!

Dearest Leah,

Hi! This is Angelica Cardoza writing (August 12, 2005). Sorry that I have taken so long to write!!! Adjusting to married life has taken up a lot of time!!! Anyhow, I wanted to thank you for the beautiful music CD. That was very thoughtful of you!!! Well everyone came home just ecstatic from our wedding day event. I have heard numerous times from our guests the words "fantastic", "well organized", and especially "PERFECT"!!!!!! That is how people remember our wedding. Leah, of course, I can't thank you enough. Our wedding turned out to be a highlight in our friends' and families' memories!!! It was a happy and perfect day that we all can't stop talking about and remembering fondly. I guess the best praise that I can give you came from my father. He said that if he had another daughter, he would have YOU organize her wedding!!! (Sadly, I am the last of the bunch!) Leah, I could go on and on and shower you with praise. (Should I?) I will end it with my favorite statement to my friends here at home when they asked me about the wedding: "It was perfectly perfect and better than anything I could have imagined!!!" Okay, now I am going to cry.

Dear Leah

Just rec'd the decorative, marriage certificate today. Thanks for mailing it to us for E&B. I also wanted to relay a couple of the wonderful comments we've heard from our guests that were at Brad & Erin's wedding:

• Sonali (Erin's maid of honor) was so appreciative of you coming to her rescue as the ceremony ended and she was emotional & in tears..."here, come with me, let's go get a Mai Tai..." Leah, you took care of her right when she needed it. You had a way of making each of our guests feel special, thank You!

• "Erin, your coordinator was AWESOME! She was there when you needed something and was always helping out. She was AWESOME!!!" (from a friend that was married just a year ago - and others totally agreeing with her!)


• "We had a blast at the wedding! You honestly could not ask for a more gorgous place and beautiful ceremony. The food was excellent the DJ was great and the whole atmosphere was breathtaking. It must feel wonderful to look back on the day and have such wonderful memories." (one of Erin's sorority sisters)

I could go on & on with the compliments... Leah - We cannot thank you enough for making all of our dreams (both family & friends) become reality. You made the "destination wedding" a thoroughly exciting, fabulous, fun experience! Sincerely, THANK YOU for everything you did and for your caring, competent expertise as a wonderful wedding coordinator in one of the most beautiful locations we could ever imagine! Our choice of you, Leah, Island Wedding Memories (and each of your vendors), Pastor Dave Krueger, and Olowalu Plantation Estate were the best we could have made!

"Warmest Mahalos",

Dearest Leah:

Please forgive us for taking a week to send this out to you. We are so very pleased with the wedding you arranged for us. As with anything, you always have something in the back of your mind - a picture of what the big day will be like. For Mark and I, the wedding you gave us was so much more than we could ever have expected or dreamt of. Not just that, but your personal service and the special relationship we formed with you only served to heighten the experience. Thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts! Please make sure to stop in and say hi any time you are in Seattle!

Much love and Thanks, Sarah and Mark Davis

Aloha Leah,

Thank you for creating a wonderful wedding experience for Daniel and I. The flowers were beautiful- the bouquets, archway, the table centerpieces- all gorgeous!!!! Our minister Adam Gomes was just perfect like you said- he is such a warm and loving person. I am so glad we were married by him. The orchids placed throughout our hotel room was such a romantic addition- it took my breath away. George did a wonderful job with the photographs- they are beautiful and exactly what we were hoping for. Celia and the violinist were absolutely wonderful and stayed to play a little longer for us-everyone loved them. Considering that is was an unusually hot afternoon, everyone ignored the heat to ensure our wedding was perfect. Most of all thank you for making it all seem so easy; I know how much work you put into each wedding. Your personal attention and professionalism make all the difference. Except for rounding up my family, there was never a moment of stress or concern for me on my wedding day- it was just as I pictured. If there is anything I forgot to mention it is because it was a blur of happiness for me all evening. Thank you so much. If you ever want to bring your family to the mainland for vacation- come see us in the Wild West corner of Texas-you are always welcome.

Hi Leah,

We received the CD yesterday and were so surprised! What a thoughtful reminder of our time in Maui and your kindness. You made our wedding perfect, and like you wrote, it's a little sad that it's over. But we'll be back to Maui and we'll let you know so we can see you again. Thanks again so much.

Love, Kristen and Kent Ng

I just wanted to say how great it was working with you. Our wedding was so beautiful, words can't even begin to describe how magical our wedding day was. We owe it all to you! You found the perfect spot, my flowers were gorgeous, and the minister made us feel as if he has known us all our lives. I was able to enjoy my wedding day because you had taken care of all the details. Thank you again for everything.

Hi Leah,

Remember us, Max and Sandra, May 16th? Just letting you know we received our photo album from George yesterday, and I remembered then that I had not taken the time yet since we returned to Washington DC to properly THANK YOU and your crew of vendors for all the effort you put forth to make our wedding memorable and unique. If I could do it again, I would not change a single thing! It was fabulous, elegant, relaxed, and so stress free, in great part thanks to you and to all your hard work. Please convey our thanks to all the vendors that participated in our big day, in particular the caterer (the food was simply perfect!), our minister, and the amazing, talented musician (guitar player) that entertained us all evening. The flowers you put together for us were lovely, Olowalu plantation could not have been a more perfect, intimate site, and the entertainment (hula dancers, musicians) lended a beautiful Hawaiian flavor to the event. The photographer, George, is a genius. We also enjoyed being able to watch our wedding video as soon as we got home (they had it ready for us the day after the wedding and we were able to pick it up on our way to the airport). Most importantly, many, many thanks to you, Leah, the choreographer, the mastermind, the efficient coordinator: you took all the worry off my special day and made it that much more special because of that.

Thanks again in a million ways, Sandra (and Max) Balboa

I can't believe we've been back an entire month already. I miss Maui. I wanted to thank you for making my dream wedding come true. Since I was about 14 years old, I had it in my mind that I wanted to be married on the beach. Everything that you put together was perfect. The Olowalu Plantation house was better than I could have imagined. Your vendors were top notch. The flowers on my archway and in the bouquets were beautiful. The food was excellent. My mother even commented that the food at the wedding was much better than the food at the public luau we went to the next night. George's photos are unbelievable and exactly what we wanted to capture that day. Adam Gomes was a perfect minister for us and even though he had not met us before, we felt he knew us. The entertainment, including Don Lax and the musical duo/hula dancers were so much fun. I have to admit, I was nervous planning a wedding so far away. But nothing went wrong. Several of my family and friends commented that they couldn't believe I set it all up on the internet and over the phone. Thank you for being so professional.

Just thought we would drop you a thank you for all your hard work planning our wedding. With the weather being a challenge, you went the extra mile, not once, twice, but three times!!!!!!!! You gave us the beach, sunset, fantastic photographer and the perfect minister. We couldn't be happier with your services coordinating all the details involved. It all added up to the "perfect wedding" experience.

Mahalo, Dave & Patti Bueker

P.S. Sorrento's took special care of us for our romantic wedding dinner! What a spectacular experience and so perfect for that special night.

Hi Leah:)

Hey there! How are you? Better weather, I hope?! I've been meaning to write you for a while:) Thank you very much for all of your help. My wedding day was a lesson in "expect the unexpected" (There was rain on her wedding day - Leah) but it all came together and turned out to be a very nice evening.

I must say that the atrium was a cool spot for the ceremony! I loved the aisle of flowers and the yellow flowers you used were the perfect pop of color! And great choice on the minister, everyone loved him!! If I had it to do all over again, I would have kept the ceremony there:) It was just right! Your bamboo topiaries were beautiful, too:) The picture of us together was cute, I'll mail you one:)

As for the ceremony musician, I can't remember him at all because I was so nervous!! I loved Hale Villarimo, the reception musician. Do you agree? I thought he was great and regret not having booked him longer! Anyways, thank you again for all of your time and for just being a very sweet person, I loved working with you!! May all your weddings run smoothly and have all of the very nicest brides! You deserve it:) I'm going to look you up on my next trip to Maui (probably next year) and we'll make a lunch date! Take care, and let me know if there’s anything you ever need here on the mainland ( I mean it!)
